I tell ya I’m alright now
But last week I was in rough shape
But I don’t get a break with nothin’

I played hide and seek when I was three
(No respect, no respect)
Why they couldn’t even look for me
(No respect, no respect)
I was an ugly kid I never had fun
(No respect, no respect)
They took me to a dog show and I won!
(No respect, no respect)
When I was born I brought no joy
(No respect, no respect)
My old man said he wanted a boy
(No respect, no respect)
I was an ugly kid, always alone
(No respect, no respect)
Halloween I had to trick or treat over the phone
(No respect, no respect)
Friends don’t call
My phone don’t ring
I don’t get a break with anything!
(What’s the matter, Rodney?)
Ah, death, where is thy sting?!

[Hook]
It’s just Rappin’ Rodney
Ain’t wrapped too tight
No, no Rappin’ Rodney
Get out of sight
It’s just Rappin’ Rodney
Make no mistake
Poor old Rappin’ Rodney
Can’t get a break!

I’m getting old, it’s hard to face
(No respect, no respect)
When during sex I lose my place
(No respect, no respect)
Steak and sex, my favorite pair
(No respect, no respect)
I have ’em both the same way, very rare
(No respect, no respect)
I know I’m old I could go any minute
(No respect, no respect)
I got a kidney-shaped pool with a stone in it
(No respect, no respect)
Doctor Vinnie Boombatz that’s another one
(No respect, no respect)
I said I wanted to stop aging he gave me a gun
(No respect, no respect)
I told him I got water on the knee
He gave me a sponge and raised his fee
(What’s the matter, Rodney?)
Ahhhh, it ain’t easy bein’ me

[Hook]
It’s just Rappin’ Rodney
Ain’t wrapped too tight
No, no Rappin’ Rodney
Get out of sight
It’s just Rappin’ Rodney
Make no mistake
Poor old Rappin’ Rodney
Can’t get a break!

Nothing goes right, I just can’t fight it
(No respect, no respect)
Well Eastern Airlines thanked me for flying United
(No respect, no respect)
I got some money, what did I do?
(No respect, no respect)
I bought some quicksand, the deal fell through
(No respect, no respect)
My car broke down I called Triple A
(No respect, no respect)
They left the car and towed me away
(No respect, no respect)
I can’t take it no more, I’m getting too old
(No respect, no respect)
I called suicide prevention, they put me on hold
(No respect, no respect)
Winter, summer, spring, and fall
I’m always up against the wall
(What’s the matter, Rodney?)
Ahhh, I don’t get no respect at all

It’s getting worse
It’s caving in
The heaviness, I can’t take it no more
It’s all over
Hey, where are my kids?
Somebody help me
Hey bartender!
Hey! Who’s that guy with my daughter?
Where’s my wallet?
How do I get out of here?
Stop that dancing!
